House Cricket

House crickets (Acheta domesticus) are very closely related to field crickets. They’re slightly smaller, (3/4 inch long) light brown colored with dark stripes on the head. These crickets are the ones that are raised commercially and available in pet stores as food for exotic pets. In nature, their lifestyle is very similar to the field cricket in that they live mostly outside, but populations can thrive indoors in a manner not unlike some cockroaches. (I’ve seen one commercial kitchen with a huge cricket problem, and in desperate need of house cricket extermination.) In the home they too may cause significant damage to fabrics.
